NBA Rumors: Owners Increasingly Believe Best-Case Scenario Is Mid-To-Late June Return
Nba Draft Lottery, Free Agency, Trade Deadline, And Other Key Dates

Since the 2019-20 NBA season was suspended on March 11, commissioner Adam Silver and company are navigating through unchartered waters.

With the coronavirus recently declared a pandemic, the league went from almost playing games without fans to at least a 30-day suspension now.

As the situation remains fluid, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has made a recommendation that will impact the NBA and events.

With no events of 50-plus people for the next eight weeks, owners have a best-case scenario in mind, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN:

While finishing the NBA season is the goal, the same cannot be said for the G League soon, according to Wojnarowski and Malika Andrews of ESPN:

Based on the CDC’s recommendation, less than 50 people at an NBA game adds up pretty quickly without fans, according to Zach Lowe of ESPN:

With an everchanging landscape, the immediate concern is obviously if the season will even resume. If May 11 is the earliest date for a return at best, the regular season and playoffs will likely extend into mid-to-late June.

If all goes well during this time, it appears both owners and players want to finish out the season. However, there are way too many variables right now.
